Anyone else going to the March for Science?

Not me.  I think scientists and educators should strongly advocate science literacy within the administration, but not by marching into Washington.  There's a more appropriate arena for it, such as at conferences, formal letters to the Presidential staff, or testifying at Congress.

There is only so far you can push with letters and statements. They can be and often are ignored by the type of people who you are directing them too, With a few exceptions the only people who would have listened are those who would have listened either way. 

I support the peaceful march, It conveys the point in a much louder fashion alongside the added bonus of bringing the issue to the public eye.

People will not always agree with those in control of their paycheck. It happens all the time.  There are then two choices: Adapt and make the best of it, or quit.  First always give your professional opinion, but through the regular channels, or your efforts might backfire.

From a Norwegian dictionary:



trump
Image

I trump m1 (truleg samanheng  med II trampe)
1 stor, tung og stiv skapning
2 egen og tverr kar
3 geværkolbe
trump
Image

II trump m1 (truleg sm o s trumf) truging, tvang, press, makt, hard metode
ta noko(n) med trump / få gjennomført noko (berre) med trump

Translation:
I trump:
1. big, heavy and rigid creature
2. selfish and stubborn man
3. gunstock
II trump
threat, coercion, pressure, power, rough method

I'm going through my old computer stuff trying to salvage some disks (not sure what to do with the cassettes yet), and I find some interesting games.  Those were the days when games were written by a single person, and he could get away with really silly names for the games.  This particular game I can't even remember, but I've written down my hiscore in the leaflet, so I must have spent some time playing it.

A quick search on YouTube and sure enough there it is:

Hello there, I wasn't sure where to post this so I decided to post it here.
Does anyone know of either a website or app which calculates Speed, Distance & Time which encompasses all the units of measurement used within Space Engine?

Wolfram Alpha can do just about anything in that vein.
